San Francisco, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Giancarlo Stanton smacked a solo homer
and a triple and the Miami Marlins blanked the San Francisco Giants, 5-0, in
the third test of a four-game set.
Tom Koehler (4-3) fanned seven and allowed four hits and two walks over seven

heels of a five-game losing streak.
"They compete, they make it fun and we're in this together," Marlins manager
Mike Redmond said.
The Giants loaded the bases against Kevin Slowey in the ninth, but Steve
Cishek came on and struck out Tyler Colvin to end the game and notch his ninth
save of the season.
Tim Lincecum (3-3) struck out six and surrendered three runs on seven hits and
three walks over six frames for San Francisco.
"He had five quick outs and then he got out of sync," Giants manager Bruce
Bochy said of Lincecum.
The Marlins opened the scoring with a run in the second. Jarrod Saltalamacchia
and Marcell Ozuna worked back-to-back, two-out walks before Adeiny Hechavarria
slapped a single into right to bring home Saltalamacchia.
San Francisco stranded a runner at third base in the second and third before
Miami added to its advantage after plating two runs in the sixth, one in the
seventh and another in the ninth.
Casey McGehee led off the sixth with a double and Garrett Jones followed by
cracking a triple into center to bring him home. Saltalamacchia's sacrifice
fly into left made it 3-0.
Stanton belted his solo shot just over the wall in center with two outs in the
seventh and Jeff Baker's RBI single in the ninth capped the scoring.
